Amanda’s Bio

I am 27 years old and have just returned to the United States after spending a year teaching English in France. I completed my Master's degree last year at Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in Linguistics. I attended Illinois State University for my undergraduate degree, and received a Bachelor's in French Teacher Education with a minor in Spanish. I have been working with children for over twelve years, including work as a full-time nanny for several children at a time, preschool teacher, Sunday school teacher, acadmic tutor, camp counselor for children with cerebral palsy, and one-on-one caretaker for children with Downs syndrome. I have experience with newborns/infants, including multiples. I am first aid/CPR certified and have completed several academic courses related to child growth and development, child psychology, and linguistics courses related to first language acquisition in young children. I have my own reliable transportation and I am a non-smoker. I am comfortable working with any pets. I am willing to do housework, run errands, and transport children to and from activities. I can provide several strong references upon request. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or if you'd prefer to speak over the phone.

Amanda was really good with the children. She was always patient, kind and encouraging. She knew just what to say to get the kids to do what she wanted. They followed her willingly! She was always on the move to keep an eye on the kids. She makes watching 4 kids at the same time look easy.
